First “Freedom Fries,” and now….

idiolect reports:

In a move designed to make the United States seem more “bad-assed and scary in a quasi-heavy-metal manner,” Congress passed a bill Monday changing the nation’s name to the Ünited Stätes of Ämerica. “Much like Mötley Crüe and Motörhead, the Ünited Stätes is not to be messed with,” said Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK). An upcoming redesign of the Ämerican flag will feature the new name in burnished silver wrought in a jagged, gothic font and bolted to a black background. A new national anthem is also in the works, to be written by composer Glenn Danzig and tentatively titled “Howl Of The She-Demon.”

I just hope it’s easier to sing than “The Star-Spangled Banner!”

[To the tune of Oleta Adams, “Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me,” from the album Two Rooms – Celebrating The Songs Of Elton John & Bernie Taupin.]
